    Default Source Stones

    We know that the Defiant use Source Stones to power their technology, but what do the Guardians use them for and what is the Lore behind the Source stones?

    "NicholasTaylorMcDowell: Sourcestones allow the guardians to commune with the gods better."

    I've seem some possibly contradictory information on Sourcestone, though. Somewhere I read that it came through the 1st rifts, but then on the official history page it says that the Vigil used it to create Telara itself.

    wtb more info.

    It could be possible that the sourcestone in Telara was used during the creation, but no longer exists naturally. To get any more, it has to come through the Rifts?

    Hmm interesting thought a little like a ZPM (Zero Point Modulator) from SG? While those where handcrafted by the ancients they are not around much anymore thus both factions end up hunting them down. Defaints to use to power their devices maybe guardians to prevent the Defiants from using them?

    Lots of possibilities.

    Perhaps it is just a side effect at being at the 'nexus' of the planes? So all of the planes meet at Telara, which then has aspects of all of them combine to create Sourcestone?

    I wonder if they'll have any Lifestone, Firestone, etc. to sort of complement the idea. Of course, only if my idea isn't total BS I guess.

    I've seen other contradictions but I'm inclined to think this isn't one. In the lorehound interview he calls Sourcestone "elementally charged matter" and he says that the cause of the rifts is the Blood Storm having cracked open the world causing it to push into the elemental planes.

    Sourcestone may be native to the elemental planes and maybe the Vigil used it to fashion Telara. That might then also explain why Telara is a nexus for the planes and why the Blood Storm are so determined to possess it.

    But with the rifts opening up all over the place, bits of Sourcestone also leak through.

    Reading your post I just got reminded of the Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator. Or as everyone else might know it, the Gravity Gun.

    It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.
